The Greatest Hits of Pseudoscience Bullshit
Recently, I've started seeing more posts about pseudoscientific bullshit on facebook (primarily from one new FB friend I haven't blocked, yet). And this person really believes all the crazy bullshit it seems, but it also got me thinking about all of the other bullshit I have come across.

The greatest hits:
Fluoride is poison (it fucks with your third eye or something? It corrodes metal?)
Chemtrails (the government is sterilizing us all, I guess)
Government (US) eroding away people's brains using Coca-cola (old crazy truck driver I used to know)
9/11 conspiracy (steel beams don't melt from jet fuel!)
Vaccines cause autism (and cancer in dogs apparently)
Mineral oils/those metallic bracelets and braces/crystal healing/homeopathic medicine (also known as making money off of the placebo effect)


What else you got? (not just generic conspiracies, but ones where people try and promote some aspect of it using pseudoscience.

Being nice is something stupid people do to hedge their bets

Comets are made of electricity.

Magnets in the sun are responsible for earthquakes.

If you put arsenic in water, then dilute it five million times, the resulting water is an antidote for arsenic.

Oh! Oh! Wait, I got one! This from a youtube commenter.

The 320 pairs of muscles in our body can isometrically unify into a single muscle. We can make the unified muscle isometrically contract towards seven levels in our body and have seven different kinds of thinking. In Hinduism, each kind of thinking is considered as a god. Chase


Bwahahahahahah!

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Are you sure that wasn't just straight from the Deepak Chopra generator?

I've been seeing a lot of commercials for the "copper infused" braces of one type or another. They have Brett Favre singing the praises of this product and how supportive it is. Well no shit Brett, it's a back brace, copper or not it will be supportive. Facepalm

Not pseudoscience but the among the most popular conspirashits on Twitter:
-Jews are inherently evil
-Jews rule the world with their mass wealth and connections
-Mossad stole Ashgar Bukhari's shoe.(just one!)
-Jews are alien reptilians from a planet called Nibiru.
-US foreign policy is the cause for all evil in the world (Include that which existed before 1776)
-Queen Elizabeth is a reptilian Jew

Saints live in flames; wise men, next to them.

I've been listening to the Paranormal Skeptic Academy podcast, all of these ghost reality shows are horrible anti- science.

It's interesting though, all of their methodology mirrors all of the Christian bullshit. It's all about using presuppositional beliefs and making everything you encounter fit within your presuppositions while discarding alternative, yet more reasonable, explanations for things.

Using the supernatural to explain events in your life is a failure of the intellect to comprehend the world around you. -The Inquisition
